June 27-28: ‘Regime change’ #MilitaryCoup anniversary dates in #Guatemala & #Honduras: a somber reminder from @rightsaction mailchi.mp/rightsaction/j…
On June 27, 1954, Jacobo Arbenz – Guatemala’s elected President – was forced from office, after a drawn out, U.S. orchestrated military coup against Arbenz’ government.
On June 28, 2009, Mel Zelaya @MelZelayaR#Honduras’ elected President – was forced out of the country at gun point, in a military #coup legitimized & supported by the #US @StateDept & #Canada @CanadaFP
The #US @StateDept & #Canada @CanadaFP-supported military #coup in #Honduras laid the groundwork for the political assassination of opposition activists like #BertaCáceres amnesty.ca/our-work/indiv… #BertaViveLaLuchaSIgue @AmnestyNow
Since January 2018, Edwin Espinal, well-known & respected anti-coup, pro-democracy organizer & partner of #Canadian human rights defender Karen Spring has been held as a political prisoner in a max-security military jail in #Honduras, with total silence from Minister @cafreeland
In the #USCONGRESS there is a bill calling for change, from Rep. Jan Schakowsky @janschakowsky, the #BertaCáceres Human Rights in #Honduras Act: 10 years after the #coup in Honduras, the US must reevaluate its policy thehill.com/blogs/congress…
In #Honduras just last week, security forces tear-gassed an international #HumanRights Delegation, watch the #video report from @dimitrilascaris of the @TheRealNews network: therealnews.com/stories/hondur…
As @dimitrilascaris reports in this #video for @TheRealNews network, the forces underlying of the authoritarian #JOH Hernández regime in #Honduras remain the same: An Unholy Trinity of Oligarchy, Repression & #Extractivism therealnews.com/stories/hondur…
The 10 years since the #Honduras coup have led to increasing poverty, privatization of social goods keeping services out of the reach of the poor, violence from both drug cartels & state security forces, with continuing #US @StateDept support thehill.com/blogs/congress…
While "it is shameful that our #US @StateDept government continues to send aid to this corrupt and illegally-elected government in #Honduras." it is ALSO true that @CanadaFP's role in the region is a national shame. We need a #BertaCáceres #HumanRights Bill in #Canada too!
